Every week Worldly Rhythms broadcasts from URF, the student led radio at the University of Sussex, and on Platform B in Brighton. The aim is simple. During one hour we explore a specific genre from a country whilst accounting for the socio-political climate that has affected the music during historical and contemporary periods. Have a listen and enjoy!
This week Worldly Rhythms broadcasted an hour of Thai Psychedelic Rock from URF at the University of Sussex. This musical movement that saw the light in the 1970s blends aspects of traditional Molam and Western Rock. Up until recent years this musical style had been frowned upon. Stereotypically, taxi drivers and lower-class individuals would listen to it. Nonetheless, in recent years a revival of Rock in Thailand has seen the light with bands such as Khun Narin and The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band releasing unique renditions of psychedelically driven Rock.
